EHF Archival Project

The EHF Archives will endeavor to provide students and researchers with easy access to primary and digital information that chronicle the history and heritage of the Ethiopian people at home and in the diaspora.

Our Mission:

The mission of the EHF Archive is to:

  • Preserve, protect and facilitate access to public records;
  • Advocate an understanding and appreciation of the Ethiopian history; and
  • Develop records management programs for individuals and institutions in the diaspora.


The vision of the EHF Archive Project is to be the leading resource on matters pertaining to the preservation of historical documents, records, information regarding Ethiopia in the diaspora.

Preserving The Past For The Future

The EHF welcomes donations of historical materials that document the Ethiopian experience back home and in the diaspora. Materials should adhere to the following collection guidelines:

  1. All Documents (photographs, maps, record books, etc.) will have an Ethiopian content and significance.
  2. Preference will be given to pre-2000 materials.
  3. Only documents will be accepted into the collection. Audio and video tapes are accepted media.
  4. The EHF has the right to reject parts of the donation, which either duplicates material already in the collection, or does not fit the collection guidelines.
  5. If it becomes necessary to de-accession materials from the collection, every effort will be made to contact the donors for appropriate disposition, unless the donor waives this option at the time of donation.

Our plan is to collect primary source materials generated by individuals and pertaining organizations on Ethiopia. This may include personal or organization records, rare books, manuscripts, videos or films, photographs, oral histories, and other materials supporting research into nearly all facets of the heritage of the Ethiopian peoples.
